PESHAWAR: Pakistani cricketer Kamran Akmal has decided to take back his decision to withdraw from the Pakistan Super League’s seventh edition after discussions with Peshawar Zalmi’s coach and director Mohammad Akram.

Peshawar Zalmi management held a meeting with the cricketer to address his concerns after which he withdrew his decision.
